Training your CORE

I’ll be honest, the extent of my core/abs training (aside from bracing with my core when I’m performing any exercise) is adding an abs exercise here and there between sets of another exercise.  I almost always pair exercises together because I like to keep myself moving throughout my workouts, so adding a few core exercises is a simple and efficient way to train another muscle group in the same time frame.

Upper Body Blast

Good morning! We are into the week and I hope everyone had an eventful Monday and good weekend! My Monday was a bit of a catch up since we travelled to Canmore, Alberta for a family wedding.  Ahhhh I can’t put into words how much I love big family weddings – seriously. LOVE ❤️ I’m talking Aunts, Uncles, cousins x 100, their kids, my parents, brothers, sister, their spouses, and their kids. It’s a lot, and fairly intense when everyone comes together from all corners of the country for such a short time, but when we are all together, it’s the best possible craziness.  My heart feels so happy when I’m surrounded by all the people I grew up with, and no matter how much time goes by between seeing one another, we just pick up where we left off – we laugh, we act like we haven’t really grown up, aaaaand we usually have a few drinks 🍹🤗  Read more

Lazy Burrito Bowls

Sometimes I’m lazy.  So lazy that just the thought of what to make for dinner leaves me feeling exhausted.🙈 Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels like this sometimes! 😬 A few days ago I was in that state, but since I have 3 other people to feed (who are ALWAYS looking for food), I had to pull it together.

Sometimes when I’m looking for inspiration I open the fridge door and I stare.  I look each shelf up and down, then I open the freezer door and stare some more, at least I feel like I’ve covered all my options.  This time after all my staring I fell back on one of my quick and easy (lazy🤗) go-to’s, Burrito Bowls 💡 Read more

Full body Tuesday

Goooooood morning! I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are (unless you live here in Vancouver) but Holy $h!t did it rain yesterday, and right now as I look outside, it still looks so nasty out there. I know I keep saying that summer is right around the corner, but I’m beginning to feel annoyed with the 7 day forecast that only ever shows rain ☔️ Please tell me I’m not the only one who complains like this?!🙊

Anyways, I hope you had time to take a quick look at my post from yesterday, I thought it might be helpful to talk a little bit about getting your beach bod ready for summer👙🤗 You still have some time but you need to get started now if you haven’t already! Hopefully you found some of my tips helpful, let me know what you think, or better yet, let me know if you have any questions 🙂 Read more
